WHO WE ARE

ROOTED, GROWING, REACHING

 

At The Vine, we are a church striving to be rooted in God, growing in Christ and reaching the world. 

 
 

Rooted in God

  • As a church, we commit to:

    • Offer worship experiences that are centered on exalting God through praise and adoration.

    • Provide preaching and teaching that is insightful, Bible-based, and relevant to the lives of our members and guests. 

    • Create an environment that seeks to remove barriers to a person’s commitment to Christ and the church.
       

  • As members, we commit to: 

    • Continually strive for a greater knowledge of God and Scripture and an appreciation for their importance in our lives. 

    • See worship as a lifestyle and response to God’s love, grace and mercy as displayed most vividly in the gift of His son.

    • Recognize our need for a Savior and make a decision to put our trust and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. 

 

Growing in Christ

  • As a church, we commit to: 

    • Provide opportunities for study and discussion of Scripture and faith-based materials in classroom, small group, and individual settings in which each member’s voice and input is valued. 

    • Foster and encourage an environment of love, inclusion and mutual support as we collectively seek to be transformed into the image of Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit. 

    • Value and engage our youth and children through teaching and mentoring opportunities and other Christ-centered, faith-building, fun experiences. 
       

  • As members, we commit to: 

    • Develop and maintain a strong prayer life and personal relationship with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    • Play an active and vital role in spiritual formation activities — as a participant and facilitator, helper, mentor or teacher. 

    • Strengthen our ability to think critically about Scripture and its place in our life as we develop a Kingdom-focused perspective. 

 

Reaching the World

  • As a church, we commit to: 

    • Seek opportunities to partner with other groups to address social, physical and spiritual needs globally and in our community. 

    • Increasingly live out Jesus’ call to be a good neighbor in more intentional and impactful ways. 

    • Emphasize small groups and participation in a group for the purposes of support, developing relationships within the church family and community outreach. 
       

  • As members, we commit to: 

    • Invite others into relationship with Jesus and participate in the work of making disciples. 

    • Be an involved and active member of a small group. 

    • Participate in the ministry of The Vine and the work of the Kingdom  through sacrificial giving and utilization of spiritual gifts.
